Not everyone has a villa in Italy, but if you love Italy, why not capture Italy in your home?! We’ve picked up a few Italian home decor ideas through our travels in Italy.
Murano is on the Venetian Lagoon about 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles) north of Venice and is world-famous for its glass making. The handmade centuries-old craft is known for its elegance and beauty and unique material, which is made up of 70% silica sand and 30% soda and lime (“fluxes”).
Glass decor may be a vase, ornament, sculpture, mirror, jewelry, or even in lighting.
A visit to Murano is highly recommended with a tour that includes watching the glass-blowing masters.
There are plenty of pizza plates around with Italian designs, but I believe less is more. Serving a pizza on a wooden “plate” is just so much more authentic.
Not every Italian touch costs an arm and a leg. With a bit of creativity, you can impress your guests when next you serve Tiramisu. The cacao powder on the white plate makes for an attractive display.
Italian art includes the most beautiful tapestries that depict Italian scenes, history, villages/towns (such as Positano), religion (such as The Last Supper)… the list is endless. European nostalgia at its best!
A statue at the bottom of a staircase, or outdoors adds to the Italian look and feel.
I’ve seen so many walls in Tuscany with climbers and they simply look spectacular. Don’t forget the plant containers below one or two windows. If you don’t have green fingers, opt for silk flowers. Quality silk flowers look like the real deal, and even more so if viewed from a slight distance.
Adding a touch of Italy with Italian home decor, indoors or outdoors, is most enjoyable and pleasing on the eye!
